The treatment of a psychological problem often requires some special techniques, which are applied in order to get an idea of the present status of the mind of the patient. It has often been discovered that the patients of some particular diseases fail to respond positively even when their near and dear ones are around them. But, they seem to be particularly happy whenever they come to close proximity to their favorite animals or their pets. In such conditions, the psychiatrists try to bring the patient back to normal condition by keeping him/her in vicinity to his/her dear pet.
There are more than a few mental disorders that subsequently lead to severe psychosomatic problems. People fail to execute easy tasks, to communicate properly, to move from one place to another, and so on. Many of these threatening problems can completely be restored to health with the help of animal therapy. The animals used in the cure of the ailing people are called emotional support animal, because of their friendly assistance to the patients that have therapeutic effects on them. The diseases for which the support of such an animal is recommended are:
● Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
● Bipolar disorder
● Social phobia
● Cognitive decline
● Stress related problems
It has been seen that people suffering from aviophobia or fear of flying feel much better when they have their ESAs with them during a journey by airplane. Autistic children learn to reciprocate often after going through a session of ESA therapy.
Legally, there is no restriction on the size and the species of the ESAs. In order to make one’s pet his/her ESA, no additional training is required. The focus is solely given to the fact whether the patient is deriving mental comfort from the presence of the animal. For the identification of the animal as an ESA and to differentiate it from a pet, an ESA letter should be obtained by the patient or the owner of the animal. For example, if someone is suffering from any one of the aforementioned diseases and the person has a pet dog of his/her own, an emotional support dog letter is needed for providing him/her the uninterrupted company of the dog. Since the condition of the therapy is to keep the animal always around the patient, having such a letter is essential for carrying the animal to different places like the passenger cabin in an aircraft or in a housing apartment where the entry of animals is prohibited. On the support of the rights of the ESAs and their owners, two effective laws have been passed in the USA, Air Carrier Access Act of 1986 and Fair Housing Amendment Act of 1988. These laws enable all the ESAs and their emotionally challenged handlers to move anywhere together. In addition to that, the owners will also be exempted from the pet deposit charges and the plane fairs.
Our psychological clinic in the USA has earned the reputation of being one of the leading psychological treatment centers in the country. We provide ESA letters to the patients, whom our psychiatrists think to be capable of delivering positive response from this mode of treatment. If your loved one or anyone you know is suffering from a serious or mild psychological problem, feel free to contact us. Our doctors will carefully diagnose the case and will take the necessary steps immediately.
The treatment of mental illnesses, emotional disturbances, or abnormal behaviors often include verbal communication and careful vigilance over the patient’s likings as means of restoring the patient to health. As a consequence of the continuous psychiatric researches, a popular and effective theory of psychological treatment has evolved. According to this theory, the ailing mind of a human being may have the capacity of deriving pleasure and comfort from the company of an animal.
Since our first day as a psychological clinic in the USA, we had been thinking about this unique bond of friendship and understanding. Actually, it is not in the modern world that animal and human are finding companions in each other. From the time of their existence in this earth, they have been sharing a long history of both competitiveness and camaraderie. Our psychiatrists have utmost faith in the positivity of this age-old relationship. After carefully observing each patient’s case, our doctors come to the decision whether the patient needs the help of an animal. Put in simpler words, the doctors watch carefully if the patient craves for the company of his/her favorite animal and if there is a noticeable change in the mental condition of the patient once he/she comes to the proximity of that animal.
The animals that are used to ameliorate the mental discomforts of the psychological patients are called Emotional Support Animals. The animals are chosen on the basis of the liking of the patients, that is why there is no restriction on the species of the animal. Having the uninterrupted company of an ESA is completely approved by the USA laws, provided that the patient has a valid service animal letter, the legal identity proof of the ESA. Our organization understands the need of the patients, and because of that we take the responsibility of delivering the letters. After getting the approval from our doctors, we do our best to provide our clients with the letter as early as possible.
The patients of any kind of mental disability and their near and dear ones should be aware of the facilities that they can derive from the ESA letters. An ESA letter is capable of providing the patients with some excellent facilities. Since an ESA is a service animal and not a pet, it is differentiated from the normal animals and the pets in more than a few ways. With the help of this letter, a service animal can travel with its emotionally challenged master within the cabin of an airplane, without being charged the plane fare. In addition to that, this letter can enable both the animal and its owner to have free access to any PET FREE zone.
If you think that you are experiencing mild cognitive disorder or, if you want to emerge out of a post-traumatic stress disorder, feel free to contact us as early as you can. On our websites, we invite applications for the ESA letters, where the patients are requested to fill up an online form giving each every detail. Once the form is verified and accepted by our psychologists, we try to deliver the letter and other necessary documents to the patient within 3 or 4 days.
